The MYTHICAL NORUMBEGA Story

Myron Paine, Feb. 24, 2014


The news story suppressed for four centuries:
Fifteen-year-old Prince Charles gives new names to places in Norumbega.
Lists of Names changed by 15 year old Prince Charles in1616

.

The King's men of James I encouraged 15-year-old Prince Charles to give new names to places in Norumbega of America.

The king's men hired John Smith to collect observations for a map of the America Atlantic coast from Norumbega to Newfoundland.  

Now, in 1616, the map is nearly completed by De Clerke. The king's men want to remove the Old Norse names from the map of North America.  

Only Prince Charles has enough social ranking to over ride John Smith and the names he refers to in his recent book.

Smith is not in favor of the name change.

He made a list of the old and new names to insert into his book.

But the influence of English royalty will enable England to promote the De Clerke map.  That advocacy will obscure the fact that the Norse were well  established in America for two hundred years before the English names were used.

The change of another land's names is a deliberate act of war.  The act implies that the land, which was settled by Norse people, was English territory.
.
England had defeated the Spanish Armada on July 29, 1588. With Spain beaten, the next contender for America was Norway. The English King’s men knew that the Norse were a major obstacle to claiming the Rights of Firsr Discovery to North America.  
.
The King’s men wanted to remove the Norse words from the maps.
.
In 1616 the Norwegian navy had been effectively destroyed by the blockade of the Hanseatic league.
.
The blockade came after a severe prolonged episode with the Black Plague, which claimed two thirds of the starving Norwegians. 


.
By AD 11614 the English knew Norway was not an active challenger for North America.  The English realized that the Scandinavians had litte knowledge of the Norse people living in America.


.
The Black Death had hit Norwegians much worse than coountries in southern Europe.  The death rate was nearly twice as high.

Then the Hanseatic League blockaded Norway harbors.  Few official Norwegian boats were arriving in North America. 

Protestant Englishmen could claim that John Cabot in 1497 had explored the North American coasts from Norumbega to Newfoundland.  If the myth that only primative pagan savages lived on that coast could be sustained, then the Protestant Englishmen could kill the Catholics and declare North America free of Catholic and Norse occupation. .

But there were those pesky Catholic churches at Newport and Boston.  Then there were all those Norse names along the coast at a time when the Norse in America were Catholics.
.
The churches were easy to remove.  In AD1612, the Protestant men in America sent a 14 cannon frigate under the command of Samuel Argil up the coast to destroy the Catholic presence.


.
A military force against civilians was a lop sided act of war.  The crew destroyed the churches in Boston, Newport and in Maine.
.
Norway never learned of those acts of war, but those Norse place names remained!
.
The king's men sent John Smith of Jamestown fame up the coast to make a map.  
.
Then they encouraged Catholic Prince Charles to change the names on the map to English names.  New explorers to the region would use the latest English map.  Few would ever know that the original place names were Norse.
.
"Norumbega," which meant "Norway" for about two centuries, would be known as "New England."  If Norumbega  showed up on a map, it would be labeled a fantasy Island.
.
. Look at Wikipedia's version: Norumbega (or Norumb├Ęgue, Nurumbega, Norombega, etc.) was a legendary settlement in northeastern North America, inextricably connected with attempts to demonstrate Viking incursions in New England.[1][2][3]
.
The scheme might have worked.  But Captain Smith wrote a book using the old names.  Then he 
published a list of the old names and the new names.
The list of Norse names above used for over two centuries. 
.
Norumbega was the name for the location we know as New England.
. Then, in 1616, England committed the dastardly deed to steal North A.erica from hapless Norway. 
.
England deliberately made Norumbega vanish.  They purged the word Norumbega wherever they could.  England’s historians labeled all mention of Norumbega a “myth.”

The evidence was sufficient for the English king's men to conclude that the Rights of Discovery really belonged to Norway, but that Norway was not in shape to compete for their rights.  

The English could and would proclaim there were no people from the east side of the Atlantic before Columbus.

.
The renaming of New England was a deliberate act of war by English Protestants during the time of King James I.  Their intent was to remove Norumbega and other Norse names from maps of the North America.

Those Englishmen have left a black legacy in the history of America.

"Native Americans" are not and do not know that they speak a dialect of Old Norse.  

The acts of war committed by the English four centuries ago are still in action.
.

. The American academics have been hood winked.  They do little research into the activities of England before the revolutionary war. They do not believe England was at war with Norway. 

The Norwegians are complacent.  They did not relize that England had declared war on Norway pocessions.  They cannot concieve that
honorable men would have attempted to steal a continent by deception.  The Scandinavians are reluctant to make a fuss about lands where tens of thousands of people with their heritage still live.

Anthropologists search in vain for evidence of people who migrated from the west and ignore the stories of people who say their ancestors came across a "salty sea from the east.

.
Historians search English records to find the source of a government by council with a strong judicial branch, but gloss over the Althoengs and judges of Iceland as a possible model.

Anthropologists search in vain for evidence of people who migrated from the west and ignore the stories of people who say their ancestors came across a "salty sea from the east.

.
The English will continue to succeed if YOU do nothing. 

Publish the news story that never that has not been printed yet!
